Gossip: how like Christ

Thursday, October 8, 2015
    To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps.
    —1 Peter 2:21 (NIV)
    I well remember Dr. [Robert] Rainy flinging out a challenge at our communion table: “Do you believe your faith? ... Do you believe a day is coming, really coming, when you will stand before the throne of God, and the angels will whisper together and say, ‘How like Christ he is!’” That is not easy to believe. And yet not to believe it is blasphemy. For that, not less than that, is what Christ promises. And what Christ promises comes true.
    ... A. J. Gossip (1873-1954), From the Edge of the Crowd, Edinburgh: T. & T. Clark, 1924, p. 12 (see the book)
    See also 1 Pet. 2:21; Lev. 21:8; Matt. 20:26-28; John 13:13-17; 15:4; Rom. 8:9-11; 1 Cor. 11:1; 15:48-49; 2 Cor. 5:17,21; Eph. 4:22-24; 5:1-2; Col. 1:27; 1 John 2:6; 4:4
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, we who are weak may rely on You.
